Visited the Den, last night. No atmosphere,too bright. not that busy. Mostly 40 to 50+ Yr old people in bar, including us,and they were playing awful music,loud, suitable for a rave. Really dissappointed, since no other bar at bearsden Cross Could be fab.

It is not often I write a challenging review. To be candid, the management that owns this place has made a big mistake. They haven't given enough support to the business. The staff need more help and the kitchen needs to up their game a...More
